One of my favorite parts of creating SORMAG was hosting the SORMAG Online Conference.  It was an online conference for readers and writers.  It started off as a seven day conference and moved to a three day conference over the years.

Last week I read 250 pages.  I was super proud of myself.  I have a 150 more pages to go this week and then it’s time to work on the next draft. I found out that I liked going away to write.  I stayed at the St. Louis Bread company this weekend and read.  It wasn’t too loud and I was able to concentrate on my writing.  Something I can’t do at home with the

This month I’m working on my middle grade book.  I printed it out and plan on doing a read through for this month. Yesterday at lunch I read 50 pages.  I’m hoping the rest of the book reads as smoothly. I didn’t do much fiction writing for 2017, so I’m working on improving that for 2018. My word for this year is IMPLEMENT It’s all about getting things done.  I have a plan and I
I’ve featured many interviews in SORMAG Digital over the last 17 years and I wanted to share a few mistakes that I’ve experienced and I hope you will take heed to these mistakes and make sure you don’t do them when you are invited to do an interview.

Today this post is to encourage someone who has been thinking about their dream this year and thinking it will never happen. In 2011 my mother died and my life changed forever.  I lost my best friend, my number one fan.  I went into zombie mode, barely surviving.  Work – feed the family – watch TV – sleep – do it over again. I know now I was depressed and grieving.   I’d never been depressed
Most book festivals include – featured authors, vendors selling their products and panel discussions. SORMAG’s Online book festival is set up on the same concept – featured authors, vendors and panel discussions.
